  • Example of PD who draws Monitoring Plan before signing anything with PP and ERPA, PD which does not accept involvement that does not include implementation.
  • Example: We had a PDD which referenced a relevant technical variable to “personnel’s best experience”. Projects which “le echan mucha crema a sus tacos” y luego se enchilan! Lack of analytic and scientic approach Poor english, gramar, composition… no persuasive essay at all!
  • Example: Projects promising to measure way beyond the meth requirements to later find that such meters committed do not work well in the environment where they need to operate Ensured required measuring equipment is readily available in market
  • Example: - Projects measuring biogas with meters designed to measure air flow not biogas flow

    3. 3. DNV’s CDM Experience Snapshot <ul><li>DNV was the first accredited DOE by the UNFCCC </li></ul><ul><li>By August 2009 DNV had registered 769 projects </li></ul><ul><ul><li>75% more than the following DOE </li></ul></ul><ul><li>DNV is the DOE with the most registered projects in: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hydro Power </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Biomass </li></ul></ul><ul><li>DNV is validating what will likely be the first registered Program of Activities </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Landfill Gas </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>N2O </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wind Energy </li></ul></ul>Number of registered projects DNV
    4. 4. Projects with Good Project Participants <ul><li>Project Participants seek advise, awareness and analytics </li></ul><ul><li>Aware of complexity and dynamics of markets/schemes </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledgeable of parallel schemes and opportunities </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pre-CERs, Gold Standard, Program of Activities, CAR, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Projects properly designed and implemented </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Well documented and proper CDM consideration/start dates </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Profitable investment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduces probability of issues in validation or verification </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Involvement through design and implementation </li></ul><ul><li>Well aware of the Validation and Verification processes and is prepared for them </li></ul><ul><li>Utilizes services available that increase project certainty </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify problem issues early on </li></ul></ul>Good PPs are in perfect control of where they are heading
    5. 5. Projects with Good PDDs <ul><li>Keep it simple </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Comply with requirements and don’t make undeliverable promises </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Project participant is actively involved and well aware of writing of PDD </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is well aware of its reach and responsibilities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Realizes that a registered PDD becomes the commitment against which they’ll be measured </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Understands the PDD is nothing but a persuasive essay </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Utilizes latest available public information for benchmarking and analysis </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Recently published PDDs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Information on Emission Factor, Build and Operating Margins </li></ul></ul><ul><li>All supporting information is presented in an accessible format and is easy to understand </li></ul><ul><li>All “assumptions” are referenced, quoted and justified </li></ul>Good PDDs are persuasive essays and keep it simple
    6. 6. Projects with Good Monitoring Plans <ul><li>Monitoring Plan is feasible </li></ul><ul><li>Equipment specifications are correct </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Specify the requirements for monitoring equipment (e.g. accuracy) without necessarily already specify the type of equipment to have some flexibility in implementation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Committed calibration conforms to meth requirements and will be implemented </li></ul><ul><li>Benchmarked against other monitoring reports which have worked well </li></ul><ul><li>All variables and parameters committed can be controlled and monitored </li></ul>Good monitoring plans are visionary
    7. 7. Projects with Good Implementations <ul><li>Implementation follows exactly what is described in PDD and Monitoring Plan </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Equipment specifications and installations are correct </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Early awareness of need for deviation or revision </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adequate calibration certificates on time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Frequency, uncertainty, independent third party </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Project owner understand the importance of each parameter and regularly follow-up on monitoring results </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep all logs and data easily available at site visit </li></ul></ul><ul><li>All calculations are presented in an accessible format and are easy to understand </li></ul><ul><li>“ Practical solutions” are not accepted </li></ul><ul><li>Make use of pre-validation and initial verification services </li></ul>Good implementations are meticulous
